Local unemployment dips lower

MADISON - Local unemployment statistics for metro areas, major cities and counties in Wisconsin, released the day before Thanksgiving by the Department of Workforce Development, show Green and Lafayette counties among those where unemployment rates inched downward in October. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' estimates for October and revisions for September showed county rates decreased or remained the same in 56 of Wisconsin 72 counties compared to rates in September. But the decreases were mostly small increments, less than a half percentage point, except in Menominee where the rate dropped 0.6 point.
